Chicken Pot Pie

So, I was thinking about what I wanted to make for dinner and I wanted soup..well, if I have soup one more night, I think my husband will freak out, so I had to try something new.
Chicken Pot Pie....I remember when I was young and my mo would make the frozen ones for us and I loved them! Well, I knew I could do this homemade, so I thought and came up with this:

  • 2 Bone in chicken breasts cooked in crock pot on low for 6 hours
  • 1 carrot, peeled and diced
  • 1 potato peeled and diced
  • 1 celery rib diced
  • 2 tbsp. butter, splash of olive oil
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2 cans chicken broth
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tube of crescent rolls
1. Cook carrot, celery and potato in butter and oil until tender.
2. Add flour, cook for a minute or two.
3. Add chicken broth and season with salt and pepper. Cook until thickens.
4. Add pulled chicken, shred as big or small as you like.
5. Add crescent rolls on top. Bake on 350 until rolls brown. (remember, everything in the pot pie is already cooked, so this shouldn't take long!

That is it! How easy is that. This really is a versatile recipe. I know this can be done even easier with creamed soups from Campbell's. I have lots of carrots and such from soups, so I wanted to be sure to use them! You can add canned veggies, frozen veggies (if I had corn, it would've hit the pot for sure!)
I put it together during the kids quiet time and now I will throw it in about 30 min. before dinner time! I will post pic when it is done!
